Weekly Update: April 4-10


It’s April! That means it’s both time to start our midweek club rides and to move the weekend ride start times forward a couple of hours. That also means that you can expect to see the “Weekly Update” posted on Friday for the following week rather than on Monday.

This week both midweek rides will start from Colchester School, but new for this year we will be alternating our Tuesday workouts between the Sprint Nights which leave from Colchester and the Urban Hill Repeat Nights which will start from Da Capo Caffe on Whyte.

As usual, we’ll leave from Colchester on Saturday and  from the Acheson Truck Stop on Sunday to finish off the weekend.
